Persecution of Coastal Andhra people by the Center is comparable to that of Jews by Egyptians and Romans. Coastal Andhras were driven out of Madras in 1953.
Coastal Andhras were denied a new capital of their own at that time and faraway place Kurnool was made Capital. Before merger of Andhra with Hyderabad State Andhra’s were having a profit budget of 50 crore. To evade compensatory payment from Madras and the Center to build their own capital Hyderabad and Andhra States were merged and Hyderabad was made capital city. This merger has its political reasons also. Andhras were merged with Hyderabad to counter political dominance of Muslims in the City encouraging mass migration of Andhras to the City. Nehry used this political maneuver to thwart formation of Communist governments in Hyderabad and Andhra States at that time.
Center’s games did not stop even in 21st century. Living standards of Coastal Andhra people are comparable to that of Cities thanks to Canal irrigation systems on three rivers.
This may be the main reason for center to be more envious and consequent persecution of Andhras systemically. Before the concept of linguistic States India was united as A, B and C grade States. Andhras are the people who guided Federal system to Indian Union. Linguistic States integrated India well and made India strong.
With the formation of Telangana State once again Coastal Andhra people are fooled by the Center but Center cannot have its last laugh. Already affect of division of the State of AP is echoed far and wide across India. Restoration of Hyderabad State and handing over of the new State to a scion of former Lieutenant of Nizam will have its own repercussions on concept of federal structure of Indian Union. Denial of Citizenship rights to Andhras living in Hyderabad or elsewhere in Talangana calling them ‘Settlers’ hits at the very sinews of fundamental rights granted to Indian citizens especially regarding right to live anywhere in India to make a living. Napoleon used to lament that Spanish ulcer ruined his fate. Let us hope persecution of Andhras will have similar effect on New Delhi’s dictatorship.
Telangana people are pitted against Coastal Andhra people by the center by propagating wrong information using puppets like KCR. When the anti Andhra Agitation slipped and fallen into the hands of 'Reds' center temporarily set aside the agenda in 1910. When Congress gained confidence that it can grab power after division by embracing KCR once again it is moving things in a brisk manner. It is all the big game played by party in Government.

The above letter was written in comments page of TOI in response to a news item, "New Andhra capital likely along caste lines", Caste in politics has always played a dominant role in distribution of election tickets. It now seems caste will discharge a vital function in the formation of the new capital of Andhra Pradesh, or Seemandhra as it is being referred to.Times of India dt. 3.8.13.
